  1. Fantasy world

    A fantasy world is a fictional universe used in fantasy fiction, for example in novels and games. Typical worlds involve magic or magical abilities and often, but not always, either a medieval or futuristic theme. Some worlds may be a parallel world tenuously connected to Earth via magical portals or items; a fictional Earth set in the remote past or future; or an entirely independent world set in another universe. Many fantasy worlds draw heavily on real world history, geography and sociology, and also on mythology and folklore.

Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Andy Dehnart:

    If (Odom's situation) becomes a central story line, it might help ratings temporarily, but we have also seen that these kind of things don't necessarily draw viewers back in hordes, if anything, it reminds viewers that this isn't just a fantasy world and that can sometimes turn off people who don't really want to think about what they are watching but who just want to tune out and enjoy.
